The Mildura South Regional Sporting Precinct will, for the first time, provide a central home for a number of indoor sporting user groups in the district. These groups generate the equivalent of an estimated 200,000 venue visitations each year. The business case for this facility shows it will provide a venue for major events including concerts and regional and national sporting events, making the economic case for this project very strong. It will also accommodate the need for community open space and passive leisure activities in the Mildura South area - one of our region’s main residential growth corridors. The Precinct will also include a café to cater for users of the sporting facilities and local residents.

This initiative is part of the Mildura Future Ready strategy, and is currently being constructed on the corner of Deakin Avenue and Sixteenth Street.

Naming process

Mildura Rural City Council has made a decision regarding the official name for the site formally known as the Mildura South Regional Sporting Precinct.

Councillors endorsed the name ‘Mildura Sporting Precinct’ at a Special Council Meeting on Wednesday 7 July following a 30-day consultation period, where the community was asked to provide feedback on two shortlisted names.

They were:

  • Marngrook Sporting Precinct
  • Mildura Sporting Precinct

Council received 287 submissions, with 76% in favour of Mildura Sporting Precinct.

Mildura Rural City Council will now consider objections to this name in line with Geographic Naming Victoria’s guidelines. All objections must be received by 5pm Friday 6 August 2021.
